Schools out!


This week I have the delightful Alex with me on work experience. Alex is studying Art and Fashion in 6th form and it’s a real treat to look at her beautiful work.

Alex would like to pursue a career in fashion but, sensibly, hasn’t decided exactly what field yet - so she is with me learning a little bit about small business/ independent designers and millinery.

So far this week we have covered silk rose making, the design process, blocking, wiring and finishing a hat and then the importance of a strong brand identity in packaging.

Alex has made a small percher hat with a brilliantly crazy topper which fits into her final A Level design brief. We’re hoping it’s worth bonus points!!!

Still a few days to go so we’re onto embellishments today!
